EVENTS & NEWS
Friday Night Outdoor Music Series — August 26th — 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
LEFT is a labor of love comprised of 5 of Southern Oregon’s most accomplished and creative players. Originally conceived in 2009 as a local “side project” and vehicle to showcase Levick’s extensive catalog , the band gradually moved closer to everybody’s front burners as they began gaining popularity.
Because of the lineup and instrumentation (tons of acoustic and slide guitars), LEFT tends to create very rootsy/retro interpretations of Bret’s songs which almost always, albeit sometimes surprisingly, works quite nicely. Over the years they have also peppered their sets with a few choice covers including some songs by The Stones, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Dylan, Rickie Lee Jones and JJ Cale.
LEFT is an acronym for the last names of the 4 original members. The current lineup is:
- Bret Levick: Vocals , Guitars
- Bob Evoniuk: (of One Horse Shy & Siskiyou Summit): Electric dobro, Vocals
- Greg Frederick: (Eric Burdon, Buddy Miles, Bo Diddly, Nickel & Nail): Bass, Vocals
- Matt Terreri: (Rebel Train, Funkamungus, ex Florida studio drummer): Drums, vocals
- Don Harris: (Pat Travers Band) Keyboards (most recent addition)
Cover $5 & $7.
The food vendor for this Friday will be Nguyễn Street Food. Also, Jake The Growler King will be outside serving up a fine selection of 9 craft beers on tap.
Mark your calendars for these upcoming performances:
• September 2nd — Jeff K & OverTones
• September 9th — Mercy
• September 16th — Rogue Suspects
• September 23rd — Blue Lightning Dance Band
• September 30th — Sonido Alegré

It’s been a while since I wrote anything for the “Winemakers Corner”, so here’s an update as to whatz up!
Currently in the vineyard we are in the middle of the bloom. As it sounds the vines have flowered and after they (hopefully) get pollinated they will start to develop into berries on the clusters. A little wind, some happy insects and voila’, Grapes!! Then hopefully not too much really hot weather and we will have some nice happy, healthy grapes to create the wines you love. It seems it’s going to be another “early” year, with the buds sticking their heads out into the light even earlier than last year. So if things remain the same we might be harvesting grapes as early as mid-August.
In the Winery we are putting together the 2014 Claret and Honor Barn Blends, and selecting which barrels will stay in the cellar until late winter/early spring to be bottled as individual varietals then. So as you might assume since we are putting the blends together we will be bottling in mid-July. We are tasting pretty much every day, discussing (arguing) over blend percentages, waving the “Magic Wand”, etc to get the best wines in the bottle for you all! So if you visit the Winery and see one of us wondering around with purple teeth, you’ll know we’ve been working hard, giving our all for the cause!
That’s all for now, another update when we know how the fruit is getting along during the summer months.
